Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: The End of Rate-of-Return Regulation?

This week New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson signed into law two bills that will end rate-of-return regulation. This is good news. For the first time, telecommunications users in New Mexico will be treated as consumers rather than ratepayers. The distinction is more than fancy wordplay. Consumers use their own good sense to make choices about what combination of quality, level of service, and price suit their needs. Consumers are not forced by law to pay a particular price for a product or service, even if they don't like it.

Capitol Comment 269 - Pull the Plug on Unauthorized Spending

Republican House and Senate leaders are under tremendous pressure from Bill Clinton and many of their colleagues to bust the discretionary spending caps established by the 1997 balanced budget agreement. But the leadership has a weapon that, if they are willing to use it, could undermine many of Clinton’s pet initiatives while tempering the spending frenzy of their colleagues. All the leadership needs to do is enforce the congressional rules that prohibit spending money on unauthorized programs.

Statement of Kent Lassman Before the Subcommittee on Telecommunications, Trade, and Consumer Protection, U.S. House of Represent

"I am for those means which will give the greatest good to the greatest number." – Abraham Lincoln, February 12, 1861 Introduction Mr. Chairman, and members of the Committee, thank you for the opportunity to share my views on H.R. 3011 and H.R. 3022 – the Truth in Telephone Billing Act, and the Rest of the Truth in Telephone Billing Act. Both pieces of proposed legislation share a single attribute. Namely, public policy should not impede the flow of information so that consumers can make the best decisions possible.

Social Promotion

As printed in Investor's Business Daily, 03/08/2000 On Dec. 18 President Clinton's education secretary, Richard Riley, visited the home of the anti-social-promotion movement, Chicago's James Ward Elementary.

Technology and Education

Thank you for inviting Empower America to testify today. Technology and education, and the deepening relationship between the two, is one of our organization’s primary interests. Just as computers and the Internet have fundamentally reshaped the way we do business, they will also soon reshape education - in universities; in primary and elementary schools; even in preschools. John Chambers, the CEO of Cisco Systems, recently said, "Education over the Internet is going to be so big it is going to make e-mail usage look like a rounding error." Empower America agrees. Technology will, in fact, revolutionize American education.
